Shirt: Buffalo Exchange
My husband and I had a rare weekend where we had…drum roll please…no plans. WHAT.
We relaxed at home for the most part, with the exception of a trip to Home Depot where we spent an hour trying to fit a new bathroom vanity into a Honda Civic.
When not MacGyvering furniture into an automobile, my husband and I enjoyed drinking tea, listening to records and watching all of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (which you NEED to watch!).
Yes, I put shoes on inside, but just for photos! I had to make sure I showed the whole outfit. Oxfords and chambray are a perfect combo.
I finished it off with a week-old Jambicure and some fantastic earrings from A Delightful Shop!

The best part of a free weekend is plenty of time to play with Luna. She makes everything better 🙂
Greetings from Orlando! I am on a work trip for the week, not missing the snow too much. Florida weather isn’t my favorite, but I have to say this is a nice change of pace.
This week’s outfit inspiration came from my best friend! She stole one of her fiance’s flannel shirts and threw a cute belt over it, and I loved it! I had to try it for myself with something from my husband’s closet.
(Side note: Does anyone else think My Husband’s Closet sounds like an awesome store to buy thrifted men’s clothing or menswear-inspired women’s clothing, where the sales associates help you style the clothing with accessories to make chic outfits? This is a business venture I need to explore. I feel a lot like Tom Haverford right now).
Fun fact: Did you know men’s shirts are awesome? They’re soft, forgiving and the patterns rock. Plus, I kind of feel like a lumberjack.
My husband thought the shirt looked cute but he joked a bit about how it was his shirt, not mine. But hey, I washed it and put it right back! Maybe I will have to peer clearance racks and thrift stores for my own men’s shirts.
My hips were a little big for this shirt because my husband is a pole, which is why the last button isn’t fastened. But I don’t think it’s necessary. If you’re going to try men’s shirts, just remember it wasn’t technically built for a woman’s body. So you might have to go a size up because the shirt isn’t made for your girls…But it’s totally worth it. Who cares what number or letter is on the tag as long as you like how it looks on you?
I decided to pair the flannel with some brown accessories and boots. I also wore some amazing high waisted jeans because they are always awesome. Always. Just ask Melissa.
The best part about the belt? My best friend has the same one and wore it with her flannel 🙂
I took these photos last week during our winter storm. I came home after driving in snow when the sun had set, so I had to take photos inside. Probably going to happen a lot this winter. I bought a lighting kit with the funds from selling my old point-and-shoot, which should help! I’m lucky that I have inspiration from fellow blogger Alligator Toe about making it work under pressure 🙂
Before the veil of humidity cast itself over Minnesota, we had some cooler days. Unseasonably low temperatures in July meant I wore pants! But you won’t catch me complaining. Wind and low 70s? Bring. It. On.
I got to show off my new pair of high-waisted jeans, the same brand and fit as a pair of shorts I own but longer. I love how stretchy they feel!
Jeans do not always agree with my butt/hips, and they are always – always – too low-rise for my taste. Little known fact: my field of study was not in plumbing. High-waisted jeans help me feel comfortable on a day-to-day basis and add an extra bit of flair to a normal outfit. With this pair, I like how the jeans look with a blouse tucked in or left out. I definitely recommend them if you have the same jeans phobia!
And of course, the classic Peter Pan collar makes any outfit delightful 🙂
This pair of jeans is a bit long on me, which allows for some fun hem folding, which also allows for showing off my pair of duck oxfords. These make me so giddy. Whenever I look down at my feet while wearing them, I get happy. How could you not? I have no ducking clue.
Yep. Went there.
Now that the temperatures are rising, selecting outfits becomes more of a science. What can I wear that will keep me cool, but not too cool in the AC-pumping office, but not leave me drenched with sweat once I get to my car and go home?
Stay tuned to see if I ever find out the answer, or to see if I have found a way to successfully avoid the outdoors until it cools off again. Only 62 days until autumn! 😉
